Starc v. Commonwealth

Facts:

The father’s parental rights were terminated and he appealed. However, the evidence established that the father had six convictions for domestic or family assault, and at least eight other instances of unrelated assault demonstrated his propensity for repeated violent outbursts both at home and in the community. The trial court found that the father contributed to a home environment wracked by domestic violence with fits of uncontrollable anger. The father’s violent behavior also spilled outside the home, where his hostile outbursts continued at varying degrees, both in and out of the children’s presence. Furthermore, the father refused to take his required medication, thereby exacerbating his anger management problems.

Holdings:

The Virginia Court made the following holding:

  • Under Va. Code Ann. § 16.1-283(C)(2), a trial court may terminate residual parental rights when doing so is in the child’s best interests and the parents without good cause, have been unwilling or unable within a 12 month period from the date of the child’s placement in foster care to remedy substantially the conditions which led to or required continuation of the child’s foster care placement.
  • Because the rights of parents may not be lightly severed, clear and convincing evidence must establish the grounds for termination.
  • Clear and convincing evidence, the requisite level of evidentiary proof required for terminating parental rights, presents a more stringent standard than a mere preponderance of the evidence. This intermediate standard entails that measure or degree of proof which will produce in the mind of the trier of facts a firm belief or conviction as to the allegations sought to be established.
